Sanders’ Vermont is home to hardy Trump voters – Burlington Free Press

In deep blue, Bernie Sanders’ Vermont, Trump supporters are speaking their mind – even when their signs are defaced.

"Near sundown on an otherwise quiet Sunday a few weeks before the November 2016 presidential election, Boyden gazed out the front window of his small home in the Burlington suburb of Williston. Parked at the end of Boyden’s driveway — where he erected a 2-by-5-foot sign proclaiming his allegiance to Trump — was a police car with its red and blue lights pulsating.

Handcuffed at the end of Boyden's driveway was Rashid H. Atweh, 23, of nearby Essex. Cops arrested Atweh for destroying Boyden's Trump sign.

    Socialist Sanders, may call Vermont his home but he’s not a
    Vermonter and he surely isn’t a DemocRAT and the DNC will
    never give him the nod……………

    I cannot believe people listen to his rhetoric, free this and free
    that….. it will never happen.

    I think Conservative Vermonter’s are feed up with all the liberal
    BS and they should be warned "Real Vermonter’s " don’t forget.
